The Greek football team Olympiacos has been selected to play against England’s famed Arsenal squad in their bid to make it to the group of the last 16 remaining clubs in the Europa League.
The Greeks will have to overcome this huge English obstacle in 2020 if they wish to continue their advance in the League.
The players of Olympiacos will have to play against two Greek footballers who are currently on the Arsenal squad, Socrates Papastathopoulos and Dinos Mauropanos.
